Rheological properties of chestnut starch suspensions (3 and 4%, db) and gelatinized starch (4%, db) were investigated with a capillary and rotational viscometer, respectively. Starch suspensions had no yield stress and showed dilatant flow behavior in the temperature ranges of $30-65^{\circ}C$. However, starch suspension showed pseudoplastic flow behavior at $70^{\circ}C\; and\;above\; 65^{\circ}C$ for 3 and 4% concentration, respectively Flow activation energy below $50^{\circ}C$ was 0.56 kcal/mole but increased to 51.9-80.8 kcal/mole at $60-70^{\circ}C$. The behavior of gelatinized starch (4%) was pseudoplastic regardless of heating temperature $(65-80^{\circ}C)$ and time (15-60 min). The apparent viscosity of the starch remained constant after heating at $80^{\circ}C$ for 45 min. The swelling power and log apparent viscosity showed similar pattern. The activation energy of the apparent viscosity of the geletinized starch at $70-80^{\circ}C$ was 13.09kcal/mole. The apparent viscosity of thermal-gelatinized $(90^{\circ}C)$ starch was lower than that of 15 psi-gelatinized starch.
